Flash videos cause Google Chrome to lock up

While trying to watch a Flash video in Google Chrome you may get the “Plug-in Unresponsive” message as shown below:


After clicking “Yes” to stop the plug-in you may see: “The following plug-in has crashed: Shockwave Flash”

A possible solution that has worked in testing is to try disabling one of the flash plug-ins. Plugins are accessed in Google Chrome by typing chrome://plugins into the address bar.
